About Emily

Summary of Services:

  • Taking for walks

(I can walk close-by or drive to dog park) ~1 hr

  • Home visits (includes feeding, play/walks, medications, keeping area tidy, scooping cat litter....as well as peripheral tasks such as bringing mail inside, watering plants, switching lights on/off, opening/closing windows, etc.) ~1 hr
  • Simple daily grooming (brushing, trimming nails) ~negotiable
I have always been caring and attentive towards animals, and, as a long-time dog and cat owner I have a ton of experience with companion animals. At the moment, my husband and I have two cats. We try to create the best possible environment for our cats by providing proper food, up-to-date vaccines, regular vet appointments, and by finding lots of time to play with them and take them outside for walks ..yes, we walk our cats on a leash ! I strongly believe that animals deserve to be in the kind of environment that will keep them not only engaged, but happy.

I have experience caring for and training other's pets - walking dogs, providing activity and play, cleaning out litterboxes, refreshing water, feeding and giving medication, and simply keeping the loved ones company for a while. I know that animals can tell when they are being well-cared for, and I am able to build trust in animals easily due to my gentle nature. As for training, I have been successful in training dogs using multiple commands, from hand gestures to voice commands (sit, lie down, leave it, shake a paw, roll over, touch, come, drop it)

I am available for dog walking, cat walking, home visits, feeding of pets, giving medication to pets (oral medications, insulin testing and injections), and simple grooming tasks such as brushing coat and trimming nails (only if animal is okay with having nails trimmed, and you will need to provide brush and trimmers).

Please note that I have flexible hours and I am available for last minute bookings. Thank you – I look forward to taking care of your companion.
